Though Howard Stern did his best to get the real talk, the usually shameless Brand is still only saying nice things about Katy Perry: "I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other ... I don't want to be too glib … She'll read it and she'll be sad and I don't want that." (He gets a pass on those "ass-ache" comments because they were semi-off-the-record and also, probably, not wrong.)
